Cityscapes - Pervez Photography

Cities are such a unique place to shoot. As centers of mass populations, they are an embodiment of the human experiment: they show us how we live together, how we form a society, but uniquely so. This is because cities inevitably include diverse groups of people, spanning race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. It is hard to not find a particular group of people in these metropolises. And in this sea of humanity, there are also majestic buildings, parks, and unique architecture. In all of this, people function with normalcy. In that sense, cities remind me that we are capable of living with one another, despite our differences, and that there is nothing unusual about it. City photography has the potential to capture all of this, and that is simply magical.

Shot of the New York City skyline in the fog after a rainy day. I happened to be on a bus stuck in traffic getting ready to enter the Lincoln Tunnel when I turned to my right and saw this spectacular visual. I scrambled for my camera gear and prayed that we'd be stuck long enough to let me get a few good shots as trucks and buses and cars drove by on the other side, making this a challenging photo to get. I did manage to get a few clear shots...if I hadn't, I'd be kicking myself for the rest of my life!
